WARHOL IS HERE at The De La Warr

At the weekend I popped along to the fantastic De La Warr Pavillion at Bexhill on Sea to have a look at the Warhol exhibition they're holding. They've pulled together an impressive collection of his work, from his early drawings and prints, through to some of his most iconic and best-known pieces. A full set of Chairman Maos across one wall was great, as was the room full of his posters and commercial work. Being an ad-bastard, the giant print of his Absolut ad artwork was good to see in there. Upstairs is a whole gallery papered in his cow print, with huge prints of his camouflage and the dollar sign (below) (it's hard to tell from the grainy camera phone photo, but that print is six feet tall). All in all, well worth the visit, and in a beautiful building too.
